Publisher's Summary

A rousing, suspenseful debut novel - True Grit meets Catch Me If You Can - based on the forgotten true story of a Robin Hood of the American frontier who pulls off the first successful kidnapping for ransom in US history. Once the most wanted man in America, Pat Crowe is a forgotten folk hero who captivated the nation as an outlaw for economic justice. World, Chase Me Down resurrects him, telling the electrifying story of the first great crime of the last century: how in 1900 the out-of-work former butcher kidnapped the teenage son of Omaha's wealthiest meatpacking tycoon for a ransom of $25,000 in gold and then burgled, safecracked, and bond jumped his way across the country and beyond, inciting a manhunt that was dubbed "the thrill of the nation" and a showdown in the court of public opinion between the haves and have-nots - all the while plotting a return to the woman he never stopped loving. As if channeling Mark Twain and Charles Portis, Andrew Hilleman has given us a character who is bawdy and soulful, grizzled, salty, and hard-drinking, and with a voice as unforgettable as that of Lucy Marsden in Alan Gurganus' Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All - an antihero you can't help rooting for.

    "Fascinating unique story, excellent performance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of World, Chase Me Down to be better than the print version?

    As I often do, I used Whispersync to move between the e-book and the audio. This was particularly good for this novel because the voice of the protagonist had a great accent and excellent delivery that added to the enjoyment. I found that I continued to hear it in my head while I read. The story itself is fascinating and well-told. You get a real feel for the turn-of-the-century gritty environment. It's amazing how current the protagonist's struggle feels in today's political and social situation. Highly recommended!
